New Obsession

You all know how much I LOVE me some hydrating serums. I don't care about the brand, as long as it works well and doesn't make me file for bankruptcy, then I'm on it like white on rice.

I've been using MyChelle Ultra Hydrating Serum for a while now.

While it works amazingly well, the price is rather hard to swallow at around $40 each. I mean, you can find them on sale at your local health food store like Whole Foods/Sprout/Trader Joe's, but the cheapest I've managed to find was $20 each (that's when I bought mine). If you wanted to try it, you can read more about/buy it HERE.

Then I recently placed an order on Avon for some skincare products, and came across this:

Avon Solutions Plus Maximum Moisture Hydrating Booster
It was originally $12.99 but is now on clearance for $2.99!! I got 2 just to try it out.

HOLY CRAP ON A CRACKER. This is one of the BEST hydrating serum I've EVER tried.

--It's a gel consistency. Some serums can be too liquid-y so you HAVE to work fast to prevent it from slipping off of you hand. You get more play time with this. 
--It smells AMAZING. So fresh and clean.
--It gets absorbed instantly leaving your skin glowy and ready for your moisturizer.
--Extremely hydrating yet not greasy. It claims to boost the hydration instantly by 253% and I believe it. 
--The price. I mean even at full price $13 is an amazing deal (I've paid about that for my Garden of Wisdom HA serums and I thought those were cheap), but at $2.99 each?!! Click on the link immediately to get some!!!! 

--Might be discontinued since it's on sale. 

After using it twice a day for a week, I'm convinced that this is Holy Grail material and promptly placed an order for 20 more. Yes, you read that right. TWENTY!! 

I'm set for life. 

I hope all of you go try this out. Believe me, you will LOVE it.

Happy weekend!

Hi Tao,

I've been following your blog and YT for a long time but have never commented. Thanks for the review. This is a great price and wow, you're set for life! You should take a picture of your giant and awesome haul. :)

Dude, thanks for the heads up! I just placed an order for 4... I've got oily/ combo skin yet it's strangely dehydrated under the surface. I've been searching high and low for an effective moisturizer and this gel-based one looks amazing, especially at this price! :D

How do you use this product?

I bought four, but 20? Yes, you're set for life. I'm so glad you are on Youtube as most of the gurus have oily skin or combo. I have dry skin just like you. :)

I got a free shipping code after $10 in my inbox today and I couldn't help but order 4. Thanks so much for the review! =)
